“Great affordable stay in Cuzco”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

This Hostal was fantastic. The staff was so welcoming and helpful with anything we needed. We even had our own room, and this stayed within our broke college student budget. They also stored our bags for us while we hiked the Inca trail, which was really nice!

Room Tip: When you are facing the front desk ask for one in the hallway on your right

We had not booked this hotel, but we were happy we ended up staying here. Rooms are very large, beds are comfortable and cozy with the heavy wool blankets! Most of the staff was very helpful and cheerful. Tended to be a little noisy, but only because there was a restaurant close by that had music some nights. This could have been because it was the end of Carnaval. Once Carnaval was over, things did quiet down. Location is great!

Room Tip: Rooms on the side don't have clear glass windows which open. The rooms on the front do, but the...

We went back to Cusco in July, 2011, and stayed at Santa Catalina again. It is the same as in '08 except they did go up $10 in price per night to $40. I told the lady that we would look around for another hostel and she quickly came back down to $30/night : ) I really like this place, but if you need the Ritz, you might want to look elsewhere. It was clean--which is my main priority (both in '08 and in '11) so I don't understand why one reviewer said it was dirty. I got a room in the back and it was nice and quiet. Hot showers, great coffee, fruit, bread for breakfast. And the coffee is made with bottled water so Gringos don't get sick : )

Instead of a cookie cutter type hotel, this one has a lot of individual charm, from the inclosed glass boxes of Peruvian art in the hallways , to the funky 4' doorway to the bathroom in our room - we realized we were not in the Holiday inn and we were glad for it!!!

Very accommodating staff - they would have to run down a flight of stairs to let us in, each and every time, yet arrived with a smile on their faces and made us feel welcome. I would highly recommend this hotel, and if I make it back to Cuzco I will definitely be staying there again.

We were extremely satisfied with this choice. Thanks everyone on Trip Advisor for your reviews. Super location, two blocks from the main square. Excellent reasturant and bar either side of the entrance. Unlike other reviews our rooms (2) were spotless. Staff friendly and very accomodating of every request. Will certainly stay at this location on my next visit.

For $ 40 a night incl. breakfast this was a great deal! The rooms vary greatly, some are newly renovated and absolutely beautiful and some are small and old. Check them out before you book. Bathrooms are really nice and there was plenty of hot water. You have to ask for towels and TP, but staff is very friendly and helpful. Location is amazing, right around the corner from Plaza de Armas. That said it can be loud at times, but all hotels in the city center are.

we had a room very early in the morning.
The room was big but noisy.
The hostal is close to the center.
We had a tour to the Canyon of Colca organized.
